A man from Vietnam was recently shocked to discover the horrifying reason for his unexplained headaches.
The man, whose name has not been disclosed, had decided to seek medical attention after suffering from severe headaches and a loss of vision after an altercation at a bar five months earlier.

After been admitted to Cuba Friendship Hospital in the city of Dong Hoi, he underwent scans in an effort to determine what could be causing such debilitating symptoms.

Incredibly, doctors discovered that he had two foreign objects stuck in his skull.

Upon closer examination, these turned out to be two broken chopsticks.
At first, the man couldn't imagine how he had ended up with chopsticks inside his head, but then he cast his mind back to the altercation with another man that had happened at a bar five months earlier.

At the time, he had suffered a head injury and had visited the hospital where he was patched up and sent on his way, but now it seemed as though the person he had been fighting with must have pushed the broken chopsticks into his skull - most likely by shoving them up his nose.

Incredibly, despite such an ordeal, he couldn't actually remember this happening to him.

On the plus side, doctors were able to remove the chopsticks without issue.

Wow, wish we had one here  . . . . . GTA no not tronNo Ontario . . . " Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest entertainment franchises out there and part of its success stems from how satirizes America. It makes fun of politics, celebrities, social media, and consumerism. It also has parodies of countless real-world brands, one of which is a fast food joint called Cluckin Bell which appears to mimic KFC, Popeyes, or Chick-fil-A.  " Grand Theft Auto's Cluckin Bell Restaurant Opens in Real Life   okay now what was this thread about ? that was a joke, seriously nice post THANKS !   OH! happe...

* crickets ... * I guess it was Vietnam he was from, name was more likely Viet Quoc Trihn and it doesn't matter posting as there are a billion with the same name. Yes hyperbOOOOOWLEEE just a little exaggeration for impact.  Anyway he'd related that in some parts it was just like a video game. At the time in the basement of the science lab it was called -- UPDATE:  " Mortal Combat " --- no it was " Street Fighter " , true story.
